Vignette: The picket captain who jammed the official picket-captain orange toque on top of his Tilley hat.
Vignette: The senior colleague with the bad leg who picketed from his lawn chair.
Vignette: The senior colleague with gout, gamely limping along the line.
Vignette: The group of students who showed up with protesting-snowman cookies.
